In the late '70s, a wave of young British musicians who had grown up listening to Jamaican music combined influences of that ska, reggae and rocksteady music with the punk and new wave sounds that were taking over the music scene at the time. The result was 2 Tone, a music genre that represented the second wave of ska and became a hit in dance clubs. Dance Craze is a live concert documentary that captures the best of the genre, lighting up the screen with songs like "Nite Klub," "One Step Beyond," "Too Much Pressure" and "Mirror in the Bathroom" performed by The Specials, Madness, The Selecter, The (English) Beat, Bad Manners and others as they whip audiences into a sweat across the U.K. Stick around after the film for a discussion with cinematographer Joe Dunton.

30th Anniversary! Mommie Dearest, 1981, Paramount Pictures, 129 min, Drama/Melodrama/Biopic, USA.
Faye Dunaway scorches as Joan Crawford in this blistering exposé of the icon’s troubled and abusive relationship with her adopted daughter, Christina Crawford (who penned the memoir on which the film is based). Told from the perspective of grown-up Christina (Diana Scarwid) remembering her traumatic upbringing, “Mommie” Joan crumples under the pressures of alcohol, men and show business, and turns into an emotionally manipulative domestic monster. Though a critical disaster on its initial release, earning an abundance of Razzie Award wins and nominations, the film has since become a cult touchstone, thanks to a ferocious performance by Dunaway and no-holds-barred direction by Frank Perry (The Swimmer, Play it as it Lays). With Mara Hobel as young Christina, Steve Forrest as Joan’s Hollywood lawyer boyfriend, hopelessly loyal to MGM, and Howard Da Silva as the screaming studio titan himself, Louis B. Mayer.
